There is no speed control other than On/Off, I've tried using insert and 'changing gears' but that is cumbersome since you can only change up not down. This is MUCH WORSE than before - all other aspects appear about the same to me (maybe a bit less rubberbanding/sliding). I've tried changing keyboard settings, tried the autoslow (which still doesn't control speed) it just stops you if you let off the gas. The only way I can 'Canter' is to use insert, I can usually walk with a quick tap but anymore taps and it's usually full speed ahead. When in combat the only way I have to slowdown is take sharp turns or stop and take off again!

Because as it is now it doesn't work or work well enough to be practical. Just look at the way it works when you click on a node or NPC - I mean you're not going to be that far from the target so why would you accelerate to max speed for 20 meters?
